The US Plays Its First Game in the Women's World Cup It's been 12 years since the US team won the Women's World Cup. Germany won the next two, and it's both the favorite and the host team in this year's competition, which is comprised of 336 female soccer players in games being televised to 200 nations from a host country that knows how to throw a party. Today, the US just completed its first game, defeating North Korea 2-to-0. Mark Giannotto writes about soccer for the Washington Post .
